Dr. Dustin Carlson showed more compassion in a phone call then I’ve gotten from any of my local doctors. He let me know he’s not sure what will have to be done yet but he made me feel like he was on top of it and I was going to have a chance to get better. Very very happy!

Few doctors really understand the implications of eosinophilic esophagitis and the reality for patients. It occurs unexpectedly sometimes and having someone really listen is invaluable to managing the condition.

External Professional Relationships
Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
